I've been spinning some red wool locks I had in my stash. The first time I spun this wool I carded it, and it resulted in theese mittens.
Here is a picture of the yarn. Not ugly, but somehow... bland.
I like them, but the colors didn't really pop like they do in the locks..
So, this time I combed the locks (with a dog comb from the pet shop..) and spun it with short patches of each color. I haven't knitted anything out of it yet, but I like the results better.
I know, the white doesn't show in the locks, that's because the dye didn't completely saturate the locks and the middle parts are undyed.
